Strikes hit Gaza after rockets fired

Israel's military says it has carried out air strikes in the Gaza Strip in response to fresh rocket fire, hours before a ceasefire was set to expire.

A five-day ceasefire was extended for 24 hours at midnight while delegations from both sides tried to negotiate a deal to end weeks of fighting.

Officials say 2,016 Palestinians and 66 Israelis have died since Operation Protective Edge began on 8 July.

The BBC's Yolande Knell in Gaza and Kevin Connolly in Jerusalem have more details.
